AAPD Pre Doctoral Chapter Spotlight

Texas A&M Baylor College of Dentistry

September 2016 Volume LI Number 5

Texas A&M Baylor College of Dentistry is pleased to celebrates a successful first year of their Predoctoral AAPD Society! The chapter was established this past year offering students an avenue into learning more about pediatric care. What started as an idea among a few dental students ampli- fied into a student chapter where over thirty students have joined and attended meetings seeking knowledge and guid- ance in the world of pediatrics. The purpose of the student chapter is to initiate and promote a better understanding and appreciation of dentistry for children among dental students. Its ultimate objective is to foster a relationship be- tween dental students and the pediatric dental community. Through the works of the officers, the organization has hosted community service events and informational for the students to enjoy as well as adopting a nearby elementary school to cater to their needs. Co-advisers Drs. McWhorter and Layton, helped the students charter the first chapter. The chapter is looking forward to year two and many more successful years to come!
